Continuing the Conversation

I want to continue sharing other people’s stories or articles from around the internet, so here are three new posts to share.

Why Michelle Obama’s revelation that she had a miscarriage and did IVF matters

There were a lot of articles about this particular story, but it encourages me that so many sites found this important.  In Michelle Obama’s recently released memoir (November 13, 2018), Becoming, she talks about her own difficulty in getting pregnant, having a miscarriage and using IVF.  Needless to say, I will be picking up this book as soon as I can!

#WorthTheWait Series

Los Angeles photographer, Amanda Naor, after her own journey with infertility, offers a free photo session to one couple who have recently had their child after struggling with infertility each month.  She shares these stories in beautiful photographs.

Recovering After a Miscarriage

Psychology Today posted an article about the many healthy things one can do after a miscarriage.  The list touches on a lot of things but also with the caveat that not everyone will follow the same exact path.  For example, talking to others or not talking to others as two options, but also stresses the importance of being mindful about depression and taking care of yourself. If you have never experienced pregnancy loss or infertility, I can guarantee there is someone in your life who has.  While the above stories may not be the same experiences for everyone, they can definitely open that window to more understanding and empathy for what everyone goes through.  And for those of you who are in the midst of these unknowns or losses, you are not alone.  May these words uplift and encourage you today. Do you have any posts or articles that have touched you or compelled you to share?
